Optoma Expands Professional Laser Projector Range with Two New High Brightness Laser Projectors

Optoma, a world-leading manufacturer of large display products and the No.1 DLP® brand worldwide and in EMEA*, announced two new additions to its range of DuraCore laser ProScene projectors for the professional installation market, the ZU820T and ZU725T.

Featuring powerful 8800 lumens and 7800 lumens respectively, the Optoma ZU820T and ZU725T WUXGA projectors are the latest additions to Optoma’s ProScene line-up, joining the ZU920T and the award-winning ZU920TST** projectors.

The ZU725T and ZU820T offer the features and benefits of its predecessors, including high brightness, colour precision, and quiet operation, along with 4K and HDR compatibility. As a mid-range solution, these projectors are ideal for a variety of professional environments and applications, including houses of worships, entertainment, immersive installations, digital signage, projection mapping, and simulation.

With an impressive 3,000,000:1 contrast ratio, the ZU820T and ZU725T produce lifelike visuals with rich detail and vivid colours. Engineered with DuraCore technology, these laser projectors also feature dust-resistant IP5X certified optical engines for 24/7 operation, offering true maintenance-free projection for up to 30,000 hours of powerful performance in Eco mode. Flexibility and reliability are front and centre with a fully motorised zoom, focus, and lens shift for seamless setups. Additionally, with built-in edge blending, warping, four-corner correction, as well as horizontal and vertical keystone correction, the ZU820T and ZU725T are fully equipped to accommodate even the most complex installations.

“Improving upon the ZU720T, the addition of the ZU725T and the ZU820T to our ProScene family fills a gap in the market for mid-range WUXGA projectors that provide remarkable flexibility at an affordable price,” said Simon Jonas, commercial category manager at Optoma. “We’re thrilled to offer our end-users a complete line-up of high brightness, compact, WUXGA laser projectors to address their installation and performance needs.”
